* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' omakes and anime, it's revealed that Hanatarou's zanpakutou is this, absorbing the injuries of others that fills a gauge on the side of the sword whereupon the stored power can be used as a surprisingly powerful, explosive attack.

** Kyouraku's power is based on weaponising children's games. As a result, once activated, his zanpakutou sets the rules by which everyone - including Kyouraku - must fight. In other words, until his zanpakutou decides it's time for the rules to allow Kyouraku to use his more powerful abilities, he can't access them.

* ''Anime/MahouShoujoLyricalNanohaStrikerS'' calls Nanoha's Blaster System and a few other attacks limit breaks with some GratuitousEnglish. And her [[WaveMotionGun Starlight Breaker]], which recycles recently-used mana in the vicinity, and so gets more powerful the later in the fight it's used.

** Earlier in the series, the Kaze-no-Kizu (Wind Scar) can only be used if Inuyasha can find the "rift" between his aura and the opponent's, and cut through it. Make particularly difficult by Kagura, who can control wind and thus manipulates the flow of their auras so Inuyasha can't find the rift.

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', the requirements to activate the Saiyan SuperMode are similar to this. Once a Saiyan of sufficient power has been pushed over the DespairEventHorizon, said Saiyan will trigger the golden-haired Super Saiyan state. Part of Gohan's training involved taking control of his anger in this fashion.
** Majin Buu's Angry Explosion also fits this trope, as it's only activation is when his [[RageBreakingPoint massive anger]] is triggered.
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'''s GIGA DRILL BREAKER can only be unleashed when the main character's spiral energy peaks (usually caused by an extreme burst of emotion).

* In ''Manga/{{Kuroko no Basuke}}'', the Zone works like this. The requirements are, at minimum, that you must love the sport you're playing, that you be an advanced prodigy (i.e. the Generation of Miracles or [[spoiler:Kagami]]), that you have an incredible, single-minded focus on the game and your desire to win, and that you are pressed to activate your unique "trigger" to open the door (i.e. Aomine's trigger is to have a "worthy opponent", against whom he can go all-out and have fun). However, with knowledge of one's trigger, and sufficient focus, it's possible to force open the door on your own, as [[spoiler:Aomine, Kagami, and Akashi demonstrate]], so it works more like Dragon Ball's Super Saiyan form than the standard limit break.

A powerful attack or technique available after some requirement during battle is fulfilled. Sometimes indicated by a refillable or chargeable gauge on the menu allowing the player to gauge when it will become available, how strong it will be, or so on; and the most common requirement is taking (or giving) damage in combat. Thus, it's usually a kind of EvolvingAttack. May overlap with SuperMode, or may be a form of DesperationAttack.

This trope shows the huge effect ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' had in making [=RPGs=] more mainstream, where [[TropeNamer the term was first used]]. Later ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games started using the term, even if the original Japanese versions didn't, and it's been applied informally to other games that used similar concepts.

This trope shows The popularity of the huge trope, and its assimilation into numerous forms of media is a testament to the widespread effect ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' that ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', the [[TropeNamer originator of the term]], had in making [=RPGs=] more mainstream, where [[TropeNamer mainstream. Although a nearly identical game play mechanic appeared a few years earlier in ''VideoGame/LufiaIIRiseOfTheSinistrals'', the term was first used]]. Later concept has become synonymous with the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games started using series and the term, even if the original Japanese versions didn't, and it's been applied informally to other games that term is now widely used similar concepts.
as a catchall term to describe such attacks.

* ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' has the "SHINING/BURNING FINGER!!". It's more of a finishing move, but in a closer sense, there's Domon's Super/Hyper modes, which (at first) can only be triggered by intense anger, then supreme calm. However, [[ScreamingWarrior the man]] [[HotBlooded is boiling all the time]], so it doesn't mean much. [[spoiler: However, later, Domon mixes the Burning Finger with Master Asia's ultimate attack, so that has to count for something.]]
